David Williams' motor is losing power, but we got to the sweet spot. We will worry about getting back if he catches 'em. In the mean time, this marshall is rationing her food in case she has to stay with the boat later. Update from Bassmaster Marshal Gwen Reed
Two years ago at the Sabine River, there were only 17 five-bass limits caught on Day 1 in a 100-angler field. Yesterday there were 37 limits caught in a 113-angler field. Consistency is hard to come by on the Sabine. Two years ago, only 8 anglers caught limits the first two days. Six of those guys made the Top 12 cut.
While fishing up the right side of an inlet, Aaron Martens noticed a fish splash along the surface on the left side. He turned, made a cast and promptly put his first keeper in the boat at 11:04 a.m. It was just a 14-incher. But on a fog-shortened day, a limit of any description could be big.
J Todd Tucker is all smiles with his first fish in the livewell. After a fog delay it's good to get to work.
